Over the course of her third pregnancy, Kate Middleton has been staying out of the public eye. The Duchess experienced an extreme form of morning sickness, called hyperemesis gravidarum.
In September, Kate had to miss Prince George’s first day of school. Instead, Prince William took his son to school on his own while Kate had to stay at the palace to rest.
Duchess Kate made her first public appearance since being pregnant again in October. She attended an event to help raise awareness about mental health. Additionally, she appeared at a special charity event held at London’s Paddington Station.
Now, the Duchess has said that she has been feeling well enough to take Prince George to school. She revealed the pleasant announcement while making a speech to educators and mental health professionals.
She said, “As a mother, just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to raise a child.”
She continued, “Whether we are school leaders, teachers, support staff or parents, we are all in this together. We are all working to give children the emotional strength they need to face their future lives and thrive.”
Duchess Kate’s speech was at the Place2Be School Leaders Forum. The charity focuses on mental health and promotes early intervention to help children with their mental health battles.
Below is a portion of her speech:
Now with multiple public appearances in the last month and with Kate’s announcement that she has been well enough to take her son to school, it seems that the days of extreme morning sickness are over for the duchess.
Last week, Kate was even well enough to play tennis with some young children. She was assisting at a program that teaches young children how to play that particular sport.
Thankfully, this pregnancy is appearing to be easier than her last two. Congrats to the growing royal family and their newest addition, due in April! What do you think about this? In other recent news, Carrie Underwood delivered a tear-jerking performance for the Vegas victims at the CMAs.
